Body Size

Location

When did body sizes become thin and fat,

Which became synonymous with Desirable and undesirable,

 

And when did the world change to

Where being thin is bad

But being fat is worse.

 

 

When did the size of someone's body become

More important

Than whether they were

Funny,

Nice,

Smart,

Or any quality of their personality.

 

 

When did we start judging people

We've never met

On whether or not

We find their size acceptable.

 

 

I have been asked about my weight more than

I have ever been asked about

My smile,

My hair

Or my clothes.

 

 

Why is a number on our pants more important

Tan something I choose that I decides how I look

Every Single Day.

 

 

When did we decide it was okay to

Judge other people on our ideas of

Ideal Body Size

Rather than let them be themselves.
